FTTH Reaches 7.6 million North American homes

The number of homes in North America connected by FTTH has topped 7.6 million, up by 1.15 million in the past year, according to figures from market analysis firm RVA LLC, cited by the Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Council. FTTH is available to about 22 million homes up by about 10 percent in FTTH "homes passed" over the past year.

"While fiber to the home deployment in Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean had barely scratched the surface in previous years, it appears that the FTTH providers in those countries are now out of the starting gate, and I expect see continued growth in their fiber activity going forward," said Mike Render, President of RVA.
